CLIFTONVILLE HIT DERRY FOR SIX
Kerry Taggart was the goal hero for Cliftonville in a comprehensive six-nil victory over Derry City.
Taggart opened the scoring five minutes before the break with Rachel McConnell doubling up just before half-time, followed by Taggart's second before the hour to put the match beyond doubt.
Toni-Leigh Finnegan - who had appeared for Northern Ireland just 24 hours prior - then added a fourth for the Reds moments later, before Taggart bagged another two to wrap up the points.
It was just the second victory for the Reds this campaign, following a 2-0 triumph over the Candystripes back in September.
